Meet Willl Truman

There is a parody account of me on Twitter! Came about in a conversation where I was complaining about parody Twitter accounts on Twitter, and most specifically that they often use the same avatar as the real account.

Notably, the parody has over five times the number of followers I do.

Gotta figure out a way to make bank here.

Update: And just like that, my doppleganger is gone.

Please do be so kind as to share this post.

    • I am honored to be associated with it.

      That’s one of the things Willl has said that I might have said, though. What is the purpose of Rhode Island? It’s somewhere in between a cartographing error and my father’s DirecTV plan that he can’t ever change from because he’s grandfathered in to a pretty good deal.


      • This, of course, is how we can tell it is a parody account. Your snark is more elaborate.

        +1. Would read again.

        All that said, it is nice to have a little smidgen of turf that is not MA and not CT just sitting there, harmless and cute.


          • In order to provide material for my own parody account, I feel compelled to point out that the historical purpose of Rhode Island was to be a haven for dissenters and those “distressed of conscience.” (Heyo, Roger Williams, a man ahead of his time.) In the 80s and 90s, its purpose was to be a haven for LGBTQ people who liked beaches and didn’t feel like faking the Fire Island mystique for the summer. (Also townie LGBTQ people who liked cold beaches and didn’t mind having to deal with tourists all summer. If you know what I mean by “having to deal with” ;). ) While there are still plenty of all those folks hanging out in the place these days, what I hear from a friend who lived there is that its MAIN purpose is to be a haven for people who crave both fresh seafood AND traditional Italian food, and who like to own their own boats and/or write literary fiction with a distinct vein of melancholy.* (Full disclosure: said friend prefers North Dakota.)

            This is a fun game! *starts her own parody Twitter acc… oh wait, I’d have to tweet enough to be parodied first*

            *You know, as opposed to all that cheerful literary fiction you hear so much about.


  1. I am not sure what to think of it.. I mean having a fake you on twitter is kindof scary but having the fake you’s twitter be rather witty and fun is just.. weird… I don’t know.
